Am I right in assuming that the 2007 and 2008 (possibly 2009) shocks interchange and the 2008 and 2009 forks interchange?

Do any of the YZ250 two stroke shocks and forks interchange with the 2008 YZ450F? Thanks!

Not entirely. '06-'07 YZ/YZF forks are interchangeable, except for the '07 YZ250F.

'07 YZ250F and all '08-'09 YZ/YZF forks are interchangeable. The later fork uses a smaller brake caliper which won't directly fit the older models.

Shocks from '06-'09 can be interchanged, although there are minor differences in length in a couple of them.

Obviously, spring and damping raters will be all over the map
